A Space to be Heard
Advocacy doesn’t have to be scary. The most influential change happens when passionate people get together to push for progress on a grassroots level.
The NCAEYC Advocacy Circle is a safe space to team up with other early education professionals and discuss localized ways to help our profession thrive.
This month, we will reflect with the NC State Team who participated in the NAEYC Public Policy Forum in Washington, DC. NC State Leaders will be sharing their experiences, as well as their speaking engagements with local officials.
The NCAEYC Advocacy Circle is open to all individuals passionate about early education in North Carolina.
